Come on England! Celebrities euphoric after World Cup quarter-final win

Come on England! Celebrities euphoric after World Cup quarter-final win

The Official Vodafone Big Top 40, produced by Global, is said to be the only chart that reflects consumption of music in the United Kingdom in real time. But first, a bit of context.

Gary Lineker, who was a part of the 1990 squad and now working as a broadcaster, tweeted - it actually might bloody well come home, the real one!

Three Lions was originally released in 1996 to coincide with the European Championship held in England, in which the team also reached the semi-final stage. The following are our favourites thus far. "I knew they were going to win, I have faith".

Altogether now...."It's Coming Home!".

Comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner helped write the lyrics and even acted in the music video - which opens with a montage that builds from England's team low-lights, to highlights.

He said he was delighted with his own song's success.

"I find myself doing this with qualifiers and all that - you have to say: 'Oh well, you never know".

Lebanese tourist sentenced to over 8 years in prison for insulting Egypt
Tourist Mona el-Mazbouh complained about sexual harassment in profanity-laced video, with Egyptians responding in kind. Mona al-Mazbouh was arrested at Cairo airport as she was leaving the country after her short stay there.

Talk about spreading the England cheer on the other side of the pond!

England reached the World Cup finals only once before, back in 1966 when they hosted and won the Fifa World Cup.

After its 2-0 victory over Sweden on Saturday, the U.K.is advancing to the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1990.

Former EastEnders star Harry Reid posted about both the World Cup game and Pride London, taking place on the same day.

Baddiiel, Skinner and The Lightning seeds score top place following England win. Though perhaps that's getting ahead of things somewhat; nearly certainly, as the Lightning Seeds immortalized, the team will manage despite the confidence of the country behind them to make an error in judgement or tactics and get the boot before seizing the trophy.

As the BBC News website has rules about this kind of thing, we can't show you this encounter - but we can provide you with a sanitised version of the chant.
